Graphic video shows Texas baseball player brutally attack woman

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (WFLA) - Disturbing surveillance video has been released of a domestic violence incident involving a former minor league baseball player.

The video shows a man, identified as outfielder Danry Vasquez, walk into a stairwell with a woman when he suddenly turns and hits her in the face twice with his hand.

The man can then be seen pulling the woman's hair as they walk down the steps before he hits her in the face a third time.

Authorities say the incident happened in 2016 at Whataburger Field, where Vasquez played at the time for the Corpus Christi Hooks.

Most recently, Vasquez played for the Lancaster Barnstormers. The team released a statement on Facebook Tuesday night announcing they had severed ties with the outfielder after seeing the video.

"There is no choice but to sever the relationship," said manager Ross Peeples. "Neither I nor the Barnstormers’ organization as a whole can condone or associate with that behavior."
